Athlone native's book to be launched tonight

Athlone native Mary Coen (McFarland) will launch her first book 'Love & the Goddess' this Friday evening in John's Bookshop, Main Street.

Mary's former teacher - Mary O'Rourke - will launch the book on Friday evening.

Mary Elizabeth Coen is a former home economics teacher, who has lived in Gort, Co. Galway, for the past 30 years.

Described as an Irish 'Eat, Pray, Love' meets 'Sex & the City', 'Love & the Goddess' tells the story of Kate Canavan, who moves to Galway city when her perfect life falls apart.

The launch takes place at John's Bookshop, Main Street, Athlone, on Friday, February 1, between 6pm and 8.30pm, with cool prizes, drinks and author reading.
